“Fabulous food and great dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Went for dinner this evening for the first time and had wonderful and creative food served by very friendly staff. We had pre-arranged a surprise 4 course meal for the 7 of us. It was a great succes!!

This is not the place to go if you want to binge eat or if you want to have American size portions. Each course is slightly bigger than an appetizer which allows to have a number of experiences through the evening. This means that you leave the restaurant very well fed and without feeling you are bursting out of your clothes. Which is a GOOD thing!

Well worth the quick trip over to Ouderkerk aan de Amstel.

“Slightly better than average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Table (10 persons) with menu + wine-pairing booked and discussed well in advance. Food was imaginative but tiny portions, one item in starter returned in dessert. Wines could have been much better paired with the various courses. Kitchen could not keep up with the number of total guests in the restaurant which made for too long stretches of time between courses. The waiter was friendly. We may return for a second chance.

“A Culinary Treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

While an evening out in OuderKerk we decided to give this restaurant a try. We were not disappointed.
I had not looked at reviews here on TA prior to arriving so had no idea what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised with the evening. Enough so to say we would go back. I see on here that some people talk about the size of the dishes here...while perhaps small the amount of effort and the suprising tastes in every bite make it a culinary feast and great wines to match. It was slow the night we were there, but let us say World Cup, Tuesday Night and summer nights can do that to restaurants. Service top and the food even better. The advantage of these slower nights is you get a chance to meet the team running the place and even chatted a while with Jaimie chef/owner afterwards.
I think the best thing to say about this place is that there is a passion in the air here to delivery a quality product! If you are in the area, or even visiting Amsterdam it is worth the trip out for this Culinary Treat!

“Quality over Ouantity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

We liked the friendly and ambitious staff who greeted and served us in this established restaurant which was previously owned by a Michelin star chef and taken over by his sous-chef. We enjoyed the fine quality of the three course set menu as well as its presentation but were somewhat disappointed by the portions and the location of our table. Their regular menu appears too limited to warrant an encore.
